DESCRIPTION

EDIT: V2 adds a trombone.

Dannenberg Trumpet & Trombone is a breath-controlled instrument created from the trumpet and trombone wavetables in the Dannenberg Wind Oscillator. It uses Spectral Interpolation Synthesis, a method of synthesizing brass and woodwind instruments via a two-dimensional wavetable as described by Prof. Roger B. Dannenberg at https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~music/sis/index.html.

This instrument is breath-controlled and without a wind or breath controller operating on CC2 or CC11 it will make no sound. I've been using a TEC breath controller, available at http://www.tecontrol.se/products/usb-midi-breath-controller, and an AKAI EWI, available at https://www.patchmanmusic.com/.

In a pinch you can instead use the mod wheel on CC1, making sure to set the Air Input Type to "Wind". But it won't sound as good.

It includes these features:
* Vibrato
* Flutter tonguing
* Sizzle (bell cracking)
* Mutes (five in all)
* Formant shift, useful for making trombones
* Pitch Attack Overshoot (initial pitch instability)

Sounds gorgeous! Wish I had a breath controller.

Rytelier - you should try 6-rev, it is a legacy Reaktor reverb from many many years ago. I think it's absolutely fantastic though and I still use it over many other popular reverbs. Space Master expanded on 6-rev and some people say they're essentially the same thing, but 6-rev sounds a bit more subtle and natural to me.

This is absolutely amazing. I am using the Tecontrol breath controller with it, and it's incredibly expressive and natural. Incredible! Thank you Chet!

That's pretty great! I'm curious - what possibilities you see for physical modeled room reverb? Orchestral instruments especially brass sound lackluster when dry without room and even reverb plugin can't improve that and I'm wondering if it could be achieved with dedicated advanced room algorithm.

Hello Fedor, I sure can. Please give me a day or two and I'll have it finished.

Can you please expand pitch bend setting up to ±24, so that the pitch would be playable on linnstrument. Thanks!

I got it with a second track in Reaper. @Andrew, 2nd remark. Because, he is a nice guy! :-)

I want to use this great trumpet as second voice in Reaper. I want to send all instruments to this trumpet and then to master; but, if I switch the trumpet "on" (from bypass), the other instrument gets silent. Is there a possibility (ensemble-settings?) to let other sound-signals through?

how does Chet Singer do it? "who cares" why does Chet Singer do it? "nobody knows"

Hello steve, set the CC# to 1, the Type to 'Wind', and use the mod wheel in place of the breath controller.

You have done it again, Chet. The trumpet is perfect! I really like the different mute-options to change the character of tone. Thank you for this gem!
